Māori History Te Takanga o te Wā is new resource that is not designed as a list of lessons or learning experiences. Instead it provides a framework to support teachers to teach Māori history with their students. The content and context that you choose for your class could focus on building quality and collaborative engagement with your local iwi and hapū. The stories and histories relating to your school’s geographic location will assist you to instill a deeper sense of personal identity and belonging for every student. This resource provides Māori conceptual thinking to frame the design including:

  • Whakapapa
  • Tūrangawaewae
  • Mana motuhake
  • Kaitiakitanga
  • Whanaungatanga
